Apple's new iPhone 15 Pro series is aiming for a piece of the gaming pie, boasting features like the A17 chipset, USB-C support, and native gaming capabilities including ray tracing. Recently, Apple announced that AAA titles like Assassin’s Creed Mirage and Resident Evil 4 will be natively playable on these smartphones. In an interview, the tech giant even claimed the iPhone 15 Pro could be the best game console around.

While Apple is not traditionally a major player in the gaming sector, it's increasingly focusing on this area. The company believes the iPhone offers more versatility than traditional gaming consoles, handling everything from photography to social media while also delivering high-end gaming experiences.

Apple isn't looking to compete directly with console giants like Xbox or PlayStation. Instead, it's positioning the iPhone 15 Pro as an all-around device, giving users the freedom to choose how they interact with it. The phone supports additional peripherals like the Backbone and DualSense controllers, giving players the option for a traditional gaming setup.

Key to this strategy is Apple's collaboration with developers. With tools like MetalFX, Apple ensures games offer top-tier visuals and performance. The iPhone 15 Pro's support for ray tracing, a significant feature in current-gen consoles, only adds to its gaming credentials.

So, could the iPhone 15 Pro reshape the gaming landscape? Time will tell, but Apple's latest efforts have certainly upped the ante, raising the stakes for what a smartphone can deliver in the realm of gaming.
